“Hello! I am a community midwife in Edinburgh and personally trying to get more into Pilates. This guide could be incredible for my girls to interpret more into our educating for women and already know how vital it is on a physical and mental level for our mummies! I think it is so great you have launched this!”
“Just a quick message, I started the Guide today and feel fab just getting back to some sort of exercise after day 1! I have a mild prolapse and the Dr advised strengthening exercises so your guide is perfect, thank you!”
“I’d like to say a huge thank you! I completed the 6 week Pilates plan in your Postnatal Pilates Guide and had an appointment with a physio at GRI yesterday. All looking really good, the gap in my abdominals is closing and lots of improvement in the pelvic area generally. I’m trying to work my way back to running/general fitness and have a checklist but it’s all looking great so far!”
